Fergus Falls, Minnesota is known for some spectacularly beautiful churches. I captured these photos of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church on my walk around the downtown area on Easter Sunday. The church is near the historic City Hall building (the one that looks like Philadelphia Independence Hall from my previous post) and also the Otter Tail County Courthouse. For as long as I can remember the town's people had said there were more churches per capita in Fergus Falls than anywhere else in the United States. I'm uncertain if this is factual, but I can tell you that the town has almost a church on every corner and they each are unique and beautiful!
Bethlehem's interior is also amazing and the organ plays the sweetest sounds ever heard.
Here's a little defining moment in Bethlehem's history from their website: "On June 22, 1919, a devastating tornado struck Fergus Falls which totally demolished the church building and shifted the parsonage off its foundations. Discussions re-opened to consider joining this church with the First English Lutheran Church, but it was decided 'to continue as before.' Bethlehem's 200 families 'put their shoulders to the wheel's to raise $80,000 to rebuild the church, move the parsonage back onto it's foundation, and to purchase an organ and all the necessary furnishings. The congregation met for worship in the Lyceum Theater until 1920 when the church was ready for services again."

I visited my hometown Easter weekend and brought my camera! The photo is of the Fergus Falls City Hall. It was built in 1928 and was said to be modeled after Philadelphia's Independence​ Hall; however, according to some accounts the architect said that the likeness was a coincidence.

Phoebe Welch was the wife of Dr. Welch, administrator of the Fergus Falls State Hospital for the Insane from 1882-1927. Phoebe is credited with starting one of the first Occupational Therapy programs in the country. She was also an ardent suffragette and supporter of education, including the public library. She would have strongly supported this book about women journalists.

Battle Lake, puffy clouds, blue skies and a weekend with the family, these are a few of my favorite things. .
